Sports concussion symposium set for March 5 at Manley Field House
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Central New York college and high school student athletes who have suffered concussions will discuss their symptoms and recovery during a daylong symposium on sports concussions Saturday, March 5, at Manley Field House on the Syracuse University campus. The symposium will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In addition to the student athletes and their parents, the symposium will feature presentations by experts from SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Central New York Sports Concussion Center and Syracuse University.
More than 82,000 Americans report sports-related concussions or brain injuries each year. Each season, 20 percent of high school football players, 19 percent of baseball and softball players, and 17 percent of wrestlers sustain concussions.
The registration deadline is March 1. The cost is $75, which includes continental breakfast, lunch, parking and program materials.
